“I am enormously appreciative of all the work you did with our daughter over the last few years. She has grown so much through the process – all of the writing she did with you, the thought she put into expressing her interests, achievements, and potential career aspirations, and the interviewing. Working with you was priceless! She is now prepared to approach people with confidence, whether that means reaching out to professors, pursuing internships, or building her network – all skills she will require to build her career. Getting into such an amazing college that offers her so many opportunities closely aligned with her interests is, in some ways just a bonus. Thank you so much for all your wisdom, kindness, patience, and support.”  Stephanie, parent in California

“Barbara was incredibly supportive and helpful throughout my time working with her, demystifying the application process and providing valuable feedback on my writing. She brought out my strengths as a writer while teaching me how to address my weaknesses. She helped me narrow down my list of schools. After getting to know the kind of student and person I am, she knew exactly which colleges and universities were strong fits where I would succeed.” Matt – student in California

“We found each child had unique needs and required a different approach to college planning. Barbara supported each of our three children and met them where they were in the process. She is calm and offers calm, even-keeled responses on every topic under the sun. We were pleased with this service.”   Kate – parent in Conneticut

“It looks like my college application process has finally come to an end, and I couldn’t be happier with the result! I can’t thank you enough for your guidance and putting up with procrastination; I’m sure this would never have happened without your help.”  Andy, student in California

 “Barbara is calm, positive, and encouraging. She is smart and knows college admissions inside and out. We are 100% pleased with this service!”   Sarah, parent in Texas

“Barbara is who you want. She knows the application process inside and out; she knows the colleges and universities backwards and forwards. She is a steady and reliable guide through the shifting landscape of college admissions. We could not be more grateful for her help and reassurance during this crazy and difficult year!”   Amy, parent in California

Again, thank you SO much for all your help throughout this entire process. I owe so much to you! I am so happy with the results and I am sure I would not be here without your dedication (especially when I could not write a single essay) from the very beginning. You made the process much more clear and had successful tips for my essays and the application itself. You were both to the point and willing to spend a lot of one on one time with me. If you didn’t think a school was a good fit, you would say it (which saved a lot of time in the long run). My common app essay was an especially long process, and you were very patient the whole time. I’m so glad I got to work with you!  Anne, student, New Jersey

We knew that the application process was daunting before my daughter started, but we had NO idea until she got into it. Barbara will save you a lot of time researching info/questions and stress in general because she knows exactly the steps to follow and timing. She was a good personality fit, and we were very satisfied with the service.  Leigh, parent, New Jersey

“Before we started working with you, I often worried that our kid would somehow end up without anywhere to go, but I felt so much better once we met with you. It really made the whole process so much less stressful. You had a lot of ideas about how to make the process less stressful, like finding schools that would be a good fit that also have rolling admissions. You also held our son to a higher standard, encouraging him to move beyond a cliched essay.” Andrea, parent, California
